Ashley Roberts tops the "Strictly Come Dancing" leaderboard after the second week of the competition.

The 37-year-old pop star - who was installed as the pre-show favourite to lift the coveted trophy - and her "Strictly" partner Pasha Kovalev wowed the judges with their performance to "Boogie Wonderland", scoring an impressive 32.

The blonde beauty - who starred in the chart-topping girl group The Pussycat Dolls - is followed on the leaderboard by Faye Tozer and Giovanni Pernice, who scored 60 for both of their dances.

On the other hand, Susannah Constantine and Anton Du Beke were left languishing at the foot of the table after scoring a meagre 12 points with their latest effort.

In fact, they suffered the embarrassment of being awarded the lowest-ever score for a Foxtrot in the entire history of the BBC programme.

The previous lowest score for a Foxtrot was 16, which was awarded to actress Chizzy Akudolu and Pasha for their routine last year.

Bruno Tonioli delivered a withering assessment of their performance.

He said: "I'm stunned. I think Anton you could have got a better movement out of a lamppost. You were just dragging her!"

Fellow judge Craig Revel-Horwood was similarly unimpressed.

He explained: "Even the smoke sadly couldn't cover that complete dance disaster."

But Shirley Ballas was more enthusiastic about the routine, saying it was "definitely better this week than last week".
